Since issuing the Operating License in February 2020 for Unit 1 of the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) has continued its regulatory oversight: starting with fuel loading, testing, including the criticality phase, connecting the unit to the UAE national electricity transmission grid until the plant is ready for full commercial operation. FANR confirms that Nawah Energy Company (Nawah), the operator, has met all regulatory requirements to initiate this important phase. The milestone follows extensive oversight, including regular inspection, to ensure the safety and security of the nuclear power plant.
